Advice re Hans Nebel cello

Recommended Posts

I have recently looked at a cello in Australia, in good condition, labelled Hans Nebel, 1925, Philadelphia.   Can anyone advise me about this maker, in particular about the quality of craftsmanship and reputation, and an approximate price bracket? Thanks!

That would be Hans J. Nebel's father. The N.J. Hans Nebel wasn't born until about 1939. It's my understanding that Hans senior was still a second generation maker, and his instruments are highly regarded.

Thankyou for your replies.   One of the issues I have is that because the Australian market is so limited, the price gets hiked up significantly!  I would love to know an approximate range just so I can sleep at night about the amount of money I am about to spend…..!  Anyone…..?

Hans Jurgen Nebel is still working as a restorer in New Jersey USA. I think Doug is correct that the cello you are looking at is by his Father although there were other members of the family who worked in the US as well. In any case his contact Info is available from the AFVBM website and I'm sure he'd be very interested to hear about this cello and could tell you quite a lot about it.

There are a limited number of photos accessible via www.grantviolins.com.au, under "fine cellos" heading.  I noticed just now that the cello is apparently labelled "No 13", though I am not sure what that means?  Thanks everyone for your replies!  I am currently in the US for a work trip so I might try giving HJ Nebel a call too.
